The Banana Daddy strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid with the ultra-popular strain Granddaddy Purple as its parent, which is considered the legendary US classic. Also, its genetic lineage includes Purple Urkle.

Cannabis testing labs have found its flowers to have THC levels between 20.33% and 24.67%. Due to a pretty high CBD content (1.12-1.73%) and a rich cannabinoid profile, medical patients widely use this weed. The list of detected cannabinoids is as follows:

  • CBC 0.33-0.42%
  • CBG 0.18-0.73%
  • CBN 0.16-0.26%
  • THCV 0.16-0.42%

Aroma Profile of the Banana Daddy Strain

In a show of its genetic line, you can expect a candy-like smell from the Banana Daddy strain like from its idolized parent. The aroma is sweet due to the myrcene terpene. There are also floral hints that spark glimpses of grapes as a characteristic of pulegone; however, the smell takes a heavier turn and features distinct diesel notes affected by bisabolol. Stoners will get a similar flavor from the marijuana that smells so good. They will recognize the tangs of berries with sweet bubblegum undertones.

Properties, Effects, and Uses

The effects produced by the Banana Daddy weed strain are overwhelming but not in a negative way. People experience waves of euphoria as their mood uplifts. They feel relaxed, tingly, and unable to focus on tasks. Though, there is a talkative tendency that can escalate and leave some individuals giggly, sometimes with fits of uncontrolled laughter. If you smoke too much, couch-lock may begin to onset.

This cannabis is packed full of healing effects and used for many medical conditions such as:

  • Lack of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Phantom limb pain
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Stress
  • Arthritis

In addition to its long list of pros, Banana Daddy comes with a few side effects – heightened sensory perception and hunger.

Tips for Cultivators

As typical for the Indica variety, its stature is short and bushy (just 30-60 inches in height). It makes the weed suitable for low-ceiling spaces if you grow it indoors. Inside yields amount to 1-2 oz./ft2. Gardeners who focus on cultivating this phenotype outdoors will enjoy a rich harvest of 15-20 oz./plant. As a high-yielding Indica, the cultivar is worth growing.

Its average flowering time is 49-63 days. The crops can be enjoyed 70 days after germination. The kush delivers large buds that have purple-tinted nugs to match purple leaves and trichomes. The seeds of this productive strain are available for sale online.
